the arab world. and an attack on the u.s. consulate in libya kills ambassador chris stephens and three others. >> the people of egypt, libya, yemen, and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for the tyranny of a mob. >> but in this highly charged campaign environment, new questions about how the obama administration should respond enter the political debate. >> the administration was wrong to stand by statements sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. >> this morning, we'll talk to a key member of the president's foreign policy team, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. >>> also this morning, an exclusive network interview with a key player in the middle east, the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu. have relations between his country and the u.s. have hit a new low over the looming nuclear threat from iran? >> those in the international community that refuse to put red lines before iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before israel. >>> sorting out u.s. options in the middle e
, which unfortunately, are readily available in postrevolutionary libya. and it escalated into a much more violent episode. obviously, that's our best judgment now. we'll await the results of the investigation, and the president has been very clear we'll work with the libyan authorities to bring those responsible to justice. >> was there a failure here that this administration is responsible for, whether it's an intelligence failure, a failure to see this coming, or a failure adequately protect u.s. embassies and installations from a spontaneous reaction like this? >> david, i don't think so. first of all, we had no actionable intelligence to suggest that any attack on our facility in benghazi was imminent. in cairo, we did have indications that there was the risk that the video might spark some protests, and our embassy, in fact, acted accordingly, and had called upon the egyptian authorities to reinforce our facility. what we have seen with respect to the security response, obviously, we had security personnel in benghazi, a significant number, and tragically, among those four that were
. the administration has basic plea changed its account of what happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be kil
is coming. nobel prize winning president -- i said liberia, i meant libya, and the nobel prize winning president of liberia is coming and a lot of other world leaders from around the world. >> mike duke will be on the opening, president of wal-mart along with the head of the world bank and secretary-general of the u.n. because of at least among american companies wal-mart is the number one user of solar power in america and they use quite a bit of wind too, so it is very interesting that they have, a buying part of their business strategy and their stock has been up and growth is good, it is cutting down on their traditional energy use. >> schieffer: i want to wish you the best of luck with this but also want to talk to you a little bit about american politics. you have clearly were the star of the detrimentally convention. you probably made the best case that anybody could probably make for your side. let's just talk about what is going on in the campaign right now. the buying topic this week was this video that mitt romney, that came to light, which he more or less said he was writin
calculating data driven guy. you tell him you got 90 seconds to answer a question on libya, he's probably going to have a good answer. he's going to do well in the debates. i think ryan is going to do well in the debates. we've got a long way to go. so it's not over. that said, the trajectory of the campaign has to change. this has been a horrific week for them. even the romney people behind the scenes will tell you, the libya press conference was a nightmare for them. even worse than this 47% video. they've got to right the ship. if they do, long way to go. >> the romney campaign -- in fact, the candidate himself, telling "60 minutes" tonight there is no need for a turn-around in this campaign. david brooks, you wrote a stinging column that got a lot of attention this week, and the headline was, thurston howell romney, referring to "gilligan's island." this suggests he doesn't know about the country and who inhabits it. who are the free loaders? the student getting a loan to go to college or the retiree on social security or medicare? personally, i think he is a kind decent man who says
